the thing that ski areas and the people skiing them need to realize is this. climate change is real. Skiing is not a winter sport, its a snow sport. You have to ski when there is snow, not when its cold...All this time and energy used to open ski areas earlier than is really viable only to close them early to mid april when there would be no cost to keep snow on the slopes is crazy! the ski areas need to change the public perception if when ski season actually is.... sadly the ski areas have done their best to convince everyone that ski season is from mid november to mid april.... Not only is this a disservice to their customers its a disservice to the planet we live on.
All that money spent in colorado to open so so early only to close when there would be no issue to keep them open. Stowe is closing with 100 percent of its terrain this weekend. I blame the ski areas for perpurating the myth that ski season is from mid nov to mid april.
